Abstract

FeCr alloys with ≤ 17 at.% Cr show incomplete primary passivation in acid solutions, with a residual current which decreases steeply with increasing Cr content in the range 8 - 12 at.%. According to the percolation model of Sieradzki and Newman, incomplete passivation should be associated with detachment of tiny metal particles, whose surface are passivated by finite clusters of Cr atoms; this should lead to discrepancies between mass loss and anodic charge, which have now been detected for three alloys (7.8, 10.0 and 11.6 at.% Cr).
